15 Month Check Up

This is how she sleeps

Well, Sofia turned 15 months last week. It was quite a monumental birthday because it was the first day she decided to walk on her own, and I mean, really walk. I'll post video next...

But today was her 15 month check up. She weighed 22 lbs. 1 oz. is 31" in height and her head circumference is 46 cm.

It seems she may not be my daughter because she is in the 40th percentile in weight. And she may not be Dan's daughter either seeing as she was in the 70th percentile in height. She was 50th in head circumference.

Well it seems Sofia's not too keen on the whole walking thing, which to be perfectly honest, is fine with me. She has pretty good balance, can stand on her own for quite some time, and she can take steps really well. She just has not figured a way to put those two things together. I think she walks a bit like Frankenstein, but like a really, really cute Frankenstein!

Here are a couple of videos Grandma took this past weekend. You can hear in the background just how much coercion it requires!

Where's Your Tummy?

There it is...

Sofia shows off her belly button.

We spent some time at Grandma and Grandpa's house yesterday. Here are some pics of the cutie Coussirat. She's so much fun!

There's a long list of new things she's doing but here are a few. For instance, she says "thank you" although it really sounds like "ah-choo." She's learned and practices sign language for the words, "more" and "water." She can tell you where her nose, ear, hair, head and tummy all are. Her favorite pastime these days is walking around the house with her push walker yelling, "Maaaaaaahhhhm," although I haven't figured out if she's referring to me or just likes the way it sounds! She's also turning out to be quite a comedian - even if she's the only one who gets the joke. She sits in the backseat of the car and will just start laughing for no reason, sometimes it's preceeded by sweet baby babbles that must mean something - at least to her! She's taken a few steps here and there but none seem to be on purpose. Grandma took some short video which I'll post soon.

Anyway, enjoy these recent pics of our cutie!!

Who is that girl?

She reminds me of her cousin, Katelyn, in this shot

Sofia spent some time yesterday at Grandma and Grandpa's so naturally Grandma took some pictures. I can't believe how "old" she looks in these. She looks like a big girl! What happened to my baby? Where did she go? It's okay, though, she's so much fun! I think she gets more fun every day...

Trip to the Zoo

"Look, it's a giraffe!"

This weekend the weather was so beautiful we really wanted to spend some time outside. I called my friend Lindsey and she called her friend Kendra and we gathered all the kids and husbands and headed to the Houston Zoo on Saturday. Our friend Bobby came too since her husband is a zookeeper and was at work that day. It was really great and Sofia pointed at all the animals and even got to pat a bunch of them in the petting zoo. We all had a lot of fun!

all three kids on the poor goat!

she wasn't too sure about their faces but loved to pat
their backs the same way she does with Jax

I love this pic for some reason

our beautiful, serious little girl

It's not too easy to get a good shot of three babies on a bench, but we tried! Isaiah is 8 months, Sofia is 14 months and little Ella is 11 months. Aren't they adorable? We think Sofia and Ella are always fighting over Isaiah. He's quite the ladies man! Hopefully they'll get to grow up together and be good friends...

I think Ella's mad that Sofia got to sit by Isaiah

I love this one! Sofia's crying and Ella's looking at Isaiah
like, "what's wrong with this crazy chick?" and Isaiah's
face looking at Sofia is priceless!

Love and peace,
Angie, Dan and baby Sofia
